The Revolution Within: Women’s Week

This November join 300 other women for a week of solidarity and community as we recognize and remember that the most needed revolution is within. Together we honor the crossroads of yoga and activism, offering an antidote to anxiety and despair—through and beyond a divided society and disruptive political times—into the deeper realms of dharma, compassion, and social justice.

Note: this is a weeklong women and female-identified only experience.

Check out the audience at one of Nancy Slonim Aronie’s performances: bodies lean toward her, heads nod, faces smile in recognition, eyes brim with tears. Plain spoken, wise and eloquent, Aronie speaks for us all about subjects close to the bone.

- Wally Lamb


Nancy is an incredibly gifted guru of the heart: a wordsmith warrior on a peace mission of the soul; champion of the abandoned child within; sage, mentor, healer, alleluia master, cheer leader. She is, in a word, sublime.

Judy Belushi Pisano

Writer, Designer, Producer

Nancy is so nurturing and encouraging… I learned more in four mornings than in all the other writing workshops I have taken.

Gail Esposito

advertising copywriter

You will hear your voice in a very new way. Nancy makes everything O.K. She’s so safe. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry. You will meet yourself for the very first time.

Susan Rubin Block

writer, nutritionist

For a shy and lonely left-brainer like me, the love and safety of Nancy’s circle was quite simply a life changing experience.  Having never written “out-loud” before, Nancy’s gift was to lead me to a bold new way of entering the world.  Before her workshop, I never imagined myself as a writer. Today, I can imagine myself as nothing else.

David Pinto, MEd, PhD

Nancy is warm, wise, hip and hilarious. I laughed and learned all night. She’s a consumer’s best buy.

Paula Lyons

"Says You" on NPR

Nancy Aronie is a caring midwife for words that want to get out and provides a place of safety, support and nourishment for their birth.

Gerry Storrow

expressive therapist

She sets the only boundary at the place where Love begins, and calls you to cross that fine line.  With her I've explored spacious realms that are very much within my imagining; They are places I was once afraid to go alone.

Philip Howard
